    Hi guys and gals, long time Tacoma World member and even longer Toyota enthusiast. First of all I want to thank everybody on this awesome Forum for your contribution to the community, and the help and inspiration you provide, whether big or small, to your fellow Toyota fanatics.

    I've been a Toyota freak for as long as I can remember. Even thought my first car was my mom's late 80's Volvo 240 wagon, which left me stranded about 5 times in 6 months, that Toyota pickup from Back to the Future was my dream truck, and so was that Jennifer babe!!!

    In my 24 years of driving I have own a lot of cars, from different brands including Nissan, Honda, Ford, Volvo, Lexus, Dodge, Jeep and obviously Toyota. Reliability, resale value and their sheer awesomeness it's what have always drawn me to the Brand (Lexus as well)

    So enough of the background and on to the good stuff. In 2013 a friend of mine who works at a BMW dealer called me to tell me they have just received a 2010 Ford Raptor. It was Traded-in by a Doctor who bought God knows what BMW from my friend. The Truck had only 20 something thousand miles on it and looked brand new. I was driving my father's 2000 LX-470 at the time and said, what the hell, so I pulled the trigger. Long story short, the Raptor sucked ass big time, it spent more time in the service shop that I care to remember.

    So one day I passed a Toyota dealer and saw this beauty. Needless to say I fell in love at first sight!!!
    IMG_0538.jpg
    Traded the Raptor and drove in my brand new 2013 Limited 4Runner. Loved everything about her, until this happened.
    IMG_1746.jpg IMG_1747.jpg IMG_1764.jpg IMG_1770.jpg

    So, I definitely needed some new rubber (and a lot of off-road driving classes). So I searched the web for advise on new and more aggressive tires and the most wonderful thing happened, I discovered T4R.ORG. I know, I know, it's not TW or 4Runners.com or Tundras.com, but It got me started in the mod bug. The Runner quickly transformed to this!!!

    img_2023.jpg IMG_2028.jpg IMG_2031.jpg IMG_2038.jpg IMG_2449.jpg IMG_2451.jpg IMG_3338.jpg

    After some time I needed a pickup for my business, and what better truck than a Tacoma??? So I bought a 2015 TRD Off Road. And that was how Tacoma World came in to my life!!! She went from this, to this in just a few months!!!
    IMG_20141005_181028.jpg IMG_20150423_163339.jpg

    As most of you with kids know, it can get cramped in the back seat of the Tacoma (Was driving it daily and the Runner in the garage ) So I realized that a Full size Pick-up would take care of all of my needs, Family and Business, so went back again to the dealer and work out a sweet deal with the Manager and got myself this monster!!!

    IMG_20150715_142022.jpg IMG_20150717_123504.jpg IMG_20150717_172241.jpg

    Now, this one is definitely a keeper. The power difference between the V8 and the V6, the interior space and its luxury, the towing capacity (although at the moment I don't have anything to tow) and a few other stuff blew my mind. But yes, it had to be modified...

    So the process began almost instantly. Installed first the TRD shift Knob, compliments of the dealer!!!

    Next was the KB Voodoo Fabrications flashlight mount complete with light. It is an awesome kit which includes a Nitecore MH25 flashlight with charging cable and all other accessories. It is one crazy bright flashlight, and the custom bracket and sticker are way cool!!!
    IMG_20151026_140051.jpg IMG_20151026_140100.jpg IMG_20151029_091717.jpg

    Check his web-site out, pretty cool stuff!!! http://www.kbvoodoo.com/


    And the pretty cool ass sticker, lol
    IMG_20151115_010522.jpg

    Soon after, I installed the Ultra gauge from the Tacoma. Still have to figure all the info this little computer provides. Pretty simple install!!!

    @Sean266 yes it was a 5.4L I really liked the Raptor but it became plagued with troubles. They changed the whole steering column twice, a module that controlled the braking lights broke and I was driving without lights for about two weeks, etc, etc...

    So, these is what lives permanently in the truck bed, action packer filled with tools, air compressor and a whole bunch of other stuff, the Igloo Sportsman and a milk crate with a water pump to clean stuff off (Nifty little mod copied from @crom from TW).

    Really thinking about the tailgate step.. It's fully functional with the tailgate down, correct? Don't suppose you could take a pic of the gate down and how far the step extends out from it?

    Hey @Asw278 , here are some pics of yesterday's trip. The bed step sure is awesome, highly recommended. There is an AMP Research model also which looks exactly as the OEM's. Installation I think is easier than the OEM one. Let me know if you end up getting one!!! Cheers Buddy!!!

    I got mine from amazon prime for $200 That was the cheapest I could find it, the AMP Research was $250 I think!!!

    Blue Ridge Overland I belive is the company. It is for the back side of the rear seat of a 4Runner, but since I already had it I placed it on the Tundra. I'll get some better pictures for you in a bit

    @zcarpenter92 here you go!!!

    Like I said, it is not intended for the seat of the Tundra so I improvised a bit an stuck the bottom part in the seat pocket. I can easily put 2 or 3 5.11 pouches in there and it will be rock solid!!!

    Got off the phone with the service department of my dealership to set a service meeting tomorrow morning because I've been feeling a weird vibration on the steering wheel, perhaps the shock or who knows what, when turning the steering wheel to the left. It's hard to explain but it only does it when turning left, has anybody felt the same vibration??? It seems like something is loose!!! :annoyed: Any insight will be greatly appreciated before i go tomorrow to deal with the service department. Thanks in advanced!!!
